Call for papersChallenges in the Scholarly Publishing Cycle 2019
Librarians and information professionals are invited to attend an event that will give an invaluable insight into best practice for delivering the open research agenda.

Organised by Research Information magazine in partnership with Info International, Challenges in the Scholarly Publishing Cycle 2019 (CISPC) will be held on 20 November at London Art House.
